Puel: Let's hope it continues

By SFC Media Sat 22 Oct Man City vs Saints

Claude Puel says he hopes his team competing on multiple fronts will continue for a long time.

Saints travel to Manchester City in the Premier League days after their trip to Italy to face Internazionale in the UEFA Europa League.

However, despite the quick turnaround in what is a busy fixture schedule, the boss feels it is positive for his players to challenge themselves.

Puel said: “It’s important to have a good recovery of course.

“We play just two days after our European game and for example Manchester City have two days more for recovery.

“It’s hard to play the Europa League because we didn’t have the same level of the other team but it’s a good challenge for us to play in all these competitions.

“I hope we can have this problem for a long time to continue throughout this competition.”
